All active suppliers that HS2 Ltd has paid count as a direct supplier. This includes contracts for Enabling Works and Professional Services.

The current HS2 tier 1 supply chain is comprised of 1,498 unique suppliers, of which 1,467 (98%) are UK based suppliers (based on the postcode of their registered address) and 1,012 (69%) of these UK suppliers are SMEs (based on turnover). A breakdown of this figure, based on geography is provided as follows:

  1. England, 1,425
  2. Wales, 17
  3. Scotland, 19
  4. Northern Ireland, 2
